Georgia O’Keeffe was one of America’s pre-eminent artists, and one of the first to experiment with abstract form, though she never abandoned her deep response to and observations of nature. An enormously popular artist, she became identified and respected as an independent spirit through both her art and her life.
O’Keeffe’s O’Keeffes explores for the first time the significance of O’Keeffe’s private collection of her own work. She had always deliberately kept a portion of her art out of the public eye and these works were not published, exhibited, or available for purchase during her lifetime. Among the pieces that had been exhibited and sold over the years, some were repurchased by O’Keeffe as they became available.
Approximately seventy-five seminal works, dating from about 1910 to the end of the 1960s and reproduced in full colour, document the range and quality of the art that O’Keeffe either chose to retain in her estate or consciously distributed to institutions in her lifetime and as bequests. This collection reveals her thinking in relation to her oeuvre, providing a unique perspective from which to come to terms with O’Keeffe as artist and collector.
